ACTPLA: Decorative Lighting Warning (Christmas/Festive Period)
ACTPLA is reminding the community to take care when installing and using outdoor lights and other decorative lighting. ACTPLA warns against buying cheap decorative lighting products which have not been approved for use in Australia by product safety regulatory authorities. Please also avoid buying second hand lights at markets and bargain stores or on-line that are not approved in Australia. Unapproved lights have the potential to start fires and cause electric shocks.
